In the middle of suburban Ohio, four bored neighbors form a neighborhood watch group to protect the town after a night security guard is murdered at a Costco. Essentially just using this as a way to escape their day-to-day lives, the four men accidentally stumble across an alien invasion plot and find themselves defending Earth. The Watch is an R-rated comedy that uses vulgarity as its primary attempt at laughs to only so-so results. The film struggles to balance the different genre elements of sci-fi, comedy, horror, etc. making it feel uneven and choppy. The worst thing about this film is simply that it isn't very funny. Ben Stiller plays his typically Ben Stiller type character, who struggles in his home life because he face his problems head on. Vince Vaughn is also very much the loud mouth, semi-funny character but the schtick is a little old and not nearly as entertaining as it used to be. The comedy has a good amount of improv which is hit or miss, but the script is just stale and derivative. Towards the end, the film simply forgets it's a comedy, outside of one particular moment, leaving it a very uninspired sci-horror movie. If you are bored or are a huge fan of one of the actors, you may like it I guess, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
